Collect for the Evening (Gloria Patri Revised)

O Blessed God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest, take us into thy gracious keeping for this night; and make us mindful of that night when the noise of this busy world shall be heard by us no more. O Lord in whom we trust, help us by thy grace so to live that we may never be afraid to die; and grant that at the last, as now, our vesper song may be: I will lay me down in peace and sleep, for thou, Lord, makest me to dwell in safety. Amen.

  • From “Second Order for Vespers” in Gloria Patri Revised (1903), p. 131
